Sorting out a meal for my pops who turns 57 today.
Menu options so far-
I haven't really tied a theme together so far.. but i'm looking into these things so far:
+ Apple spiced brussel sprouts w/ candied walnuts or pecans
+ Grilled green onion with fresh squeezed lemons
+ Broiled salmon with pesto and toasted pistachios
+ Roasted potatoes patatas bravas style
Maybe i'll try my own version of a tapas style dinner. Sangria et. al.
For certain though, dessert will be coconut cupcakes topped with a cream cheese frosting + toasted almonds. The recipe for the coconut cupcakes is the one from Barefoot Contessa i've been dying to try!
